Bereaved Children’s Awareness Week 2022

Bereaved Children’s Awareness Week 2022

bereaved Childrens awareness week 2022 Every November, the Irish Childhood Bereavement Network (ICBN) organise a series of events across Ireland to highlight bereaved children’s needs and provide a voice for them to be heard.

Children are the “hidden mourners” in our society they feel the loss over a lifetime, and in different ways: as they grow and learn to understand the real meaning of death and loss. Every child has different needs, perspectives and understandings of what death means.

Please find a selection of resources and graphics for use in workplaces and communities to raise awareness about Bereaved Children’s Awareness Week 2022 on our Promotional Assets page.
